Reasons to Migrate

Organizations today are under tremendous pressure to implement effective cost-control strategies without sacrificing growth, productivity, functionality, or flexibility. Enterprises that currently support multiple data platforms face issues of inconsistency and higher short-term and long-term licensing and service costs. As a database management solution, Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 provides everything an organization needs to lower its total-cost-of-ownership, manage all volumes of data from birth to archival, and provide mission-critical functionality and reliability.

Top benefits of migrating:

  • Low total-cost-of-ownership.
  • Increased performance and speed.
  • Minimized downtime.
  • Consolidated, enterprise-class environment.
  • Full scalability, up and out.
  • Reduced IT and storage costs.
  • Always-On Technologies: always available.
  • Interoperability with Microsoft Office.
